This is a real adventure book, so be careful not to get too lost between its pages…
The Vasylenko family are adventurers. They all love the wet and the wild, the thrill of exploring the outside world. All that is … except Oktober. He prefers the warm and safe comfort of the inside world, and for his adventures to take place between the pages of a book. But tomorrow, Oktober has to join his family on a trek into the slimy, grimy and climby wild, where he sees only danger and worry and fears a creature called “The Wilderness”! Failing to keep his wits about him could be dangerous though – it may even get him a bit … lost. But perhaps getting lost is just what Oktober needs to find himself and maybe even make an unexpected friend.
The Wilderness is a wild and wondrous story of true bravery and discovering friendship in the most unexpected of places, perfect for adventurers and the more timid alike.
Open with care for this debut authorial picture book is truly an adventure [...] A story filled with optimism, family love, heart-warming happiness, a magical read taking us on an unexpected adventure, presenting a challenge. Beautiful. * Armadillo Magazine * Everything about this book roars "epic!" [...] The attention to detail is astonishing, with each of the twelve children having distinct, recognisable personalities without so much as saying a word. It's very much a book that lends itself to being read again and again, following a different path, and character, each time. -- Ruth Ennis * Books Ireland *
